A very pleasant experience dining in a large courtyard. A broad menu selection that should please just about anyone.

We had dinner on the outside patio on a lovely evening. There was some really nice music played but it made it a bit hard to hear our conversation. The service was excellent. Two of us didn't care too much for our entrees - the the other two were excellent. The restaurant very graciously didn't charge for these entrees. We will be going back again soon.

We celebrated our anniversary at Dante's recently. Good wine selection, excellent lamb, husband had the seafood special of the day and they served a complimentary dessert. Service as perfect - attentive but not overbearing.

Another great evening at Dante's. While the weather did not cooperate and we were unable to sit outside and enjoy the patio dining and music, it was still a great evening. My wife and I both had the rockfish, but with a side of pasta, and it was excellent. One of our "go to" places in Northern Virginia.

It was a beautiful night and the three piece combo was the perfect addition. They offered a few gluten free options for my daughter-in-law, which worked out well. Everyone else had seafood and it was great. So nice to be able to return to one of our favorite restaurants!

Dante was always an excellent restaurant, but since they've expanded their outdoor seating it is one of the most attractive dining venues in the area! Prices are reasonable, and service is great!

The ambiance was welcoming for the patio was open. A new white picket fence was up and the umbrella tables supplied shade. A band played which seem very festive.

The waiters were very careful about our health and wore masks. The food was tasty and politely serviced.

It was a great step back to normalcy. My guests enjoyed every moment.

A terrific Spring evening outside on a beautiful day, with a very good jazz band playing at a nice volume for enjoying and still having conversations. Food was delicious, a Borolo wine was superb, and the service was friendly and helpful.

Lovely dinner and felt confident with Covid precautions...masks worn properly,tables set well apart, tables cleaned right away after diners had left. Food was great..our party of six had everything from lamb to seafood to pasta and enjoyed by all. Service was swift and efficient. Nice wine selections and excellent desserts. Nice ambience due to beautiful older house setting and ample parking.

Extraordinary restaurant! Food was absolutely delicious-freshest ingredients, highest quality and just as if we were in the finest restaurant in Italy. Service is outstanding-waiters are very knowledgeable and you are taken great care of on anything you need. We had an issue with my father's ability to walk far(or up the stairs) and the whole staff could not have been more accommodating--arranging for us to have a nice table where he could get to-but even more--making sure it was a special night for us. Excellent ambiance! This is my absolute favorite restaurant and it is great for a special occasion--but that should be every week!

Went for my daughters 16th birthday. Food was great! Had the calamari and a crab and avocado appetizer! Calamari great. The crab/avocado appetizer was good but needed more. Had lamb, rockfish, lobster linguine and spinach/veal ravioli.
All great....

We chose Dante for our first meal inside a restaurant since the pandemic began over a year ago. The staff was wonderfully welcoming and attentive. The tables are set with well over 6' distancing.
The food and service were truly outstanding. Because it was my partner Carol's birthday, they treated us with a tiramisu - with candle.
Love Dante, will return!

Dante's was fantastic ! The food is delicious and really fresh and healthy. The Dover Sole was exceptional as was the arugula salad. And the food is well priced. Truly a great value! We sat outside as it was a warm spring night . The heaters were perfect and the atmosphere is just beautiful. The friendly and accommodating staff made for a lovely evening .

We found Dante Ristorante a month ago and when we needed a place to celebrate a special event, this was the first place we considered. Once again, it did not fail and Eddy took great care of it. Now the patio is open offering diversity in seating options. highly recommended
